Back to France - 2010

In 2006, we took what we thought would be our "Once in a Lifetime" overseas trip. Sue had just retired due to health issues, we paid our the mortgage and put some cash aside for that trip to France and Italy.
Little did we know that 2006 would be followed by France in 2008 and 2009. Wednesdays in France finished last week with our return from Paris to Melbourne for that 2009 trip. It was one where we met some really nice people along the way, saw some great scenery and architecture while experiencing markets and culinary delights of France.


You dream that you might travel back but its not a certain. 2010 was to be my 60th year and Sue asked what would I like to do to celebrate this milestone. Would I like to have a party and invite all my friends , so I rang them both and they were busy on that occasion. Sue had another idea - would I like to celebrate my 60th in Paris. Fantastic, yes please!

So Wednesdays in France returns next week with our 2010 trip. It was a shorter one this time but no less enjoyable with two weeks in an apartment in Paris and a few days in the Loire staying with friends.

I also had my bike with me again and had the chance to ride with two of my cycling friends in Paris.
We see Wednesdays in France as a bit of a travel diary and YES, a little indulgent. BUT isn't that what blogging is? We enjoy all our favourite Blogs and hope you enjoy our travel experiences.

But more next week -

  2. Looking forward to next Wednesday, I love travelling parts of France with you that we have not seen yet, and seeing them through your eyes is almost as good as being there. Have a good day. Diane

  3. I also thought that our first trip to France would be our last, but we too have been bitten by the place.

    1. CW - Yes but all you need to do is just hop across the channel - how good would that be.
